Amazon 4-star is a dream store for last-minute gift givers
See the original posting on The Verge
Yesterday Amazon opened up another retail location in New York City. But this one, the companys third in Manhattan, is different than the standard Amazon Books store. Its called Amazon 4-star, and the name gives away the stores premise: Amazon 4-star stocks items that have an average customer review rating of four stars and above. There are also sections for new / trending and top sellers, where featured products dont necessarily have to meet the four-star bar.
The stores selection will be changed out and refreshed on a frequent basis in some cases weekly, according to one employee I spoke to but there are mainstays (like Amazons own hardware products) that will obviously be a permanent staple of the store.
